Engage with Eva Lutnæs on Tuesday 20 October 2020


Eva Lutnæs photoEva Lutnæs will discuss her research article published in the special issue of  Revista Chilena de Diseño, RChD: creación y pensamiento special issue Vol. 5 Núm. 8 (2020) on the theme of Design Literacy for All.

The editorial outlining the scope of special journal issue in Spanish and English is can be downloaded from this link RChD 2020 v5 n8 Editorial Espanol English Design Literacy

Eva’s paper titled Empowering Responsible Design Literacy: Identifying Narratives in a New Curriculum,  opened the special issue. Eva documented the possibility of Design Literacy to help educate more informed and responsible citizens. She did this by interrogating the new national Norwegian curriculum in the Arts and Crafts subject area. Then she mapped out specific opportunities and challenges for Design skills to be embedded in K-12 education. The paper presented an interesting national curricular response that created an opportunity for Design literacy to be incorporated within the K-12 general education system. Although this idea was promoted two decades ago, Eva Lutnæs provides an account of how it can be operationalized. Thus, the critical aspect of Lutnæs’ contribution was that the outlined national educational initiative can serve as a model for other groups looking at Design as a possible educational framework. The paper can be access on the Revista Chilena de Diseño, RChD: creación y pensamiento portal on this link https://rchd.uchile.cl/index.php/RChDCP/article/view/56120
